India and the Commonwealth

Title:India and the Commonwealth
Author:Srinivasan K.
Publication:The Round Table / Routledge
Enumeration:Volume 351, pp.445-448 / July 1, 1999
Abstract:The Commonwealth is the largest world grouping to profess the same system of values and to function in the same language. Its survival over the decades can be attributed to its lack of a constitution, charter or rules of procedure. This flexibility stems largely from the formula embodied in the London Declaration of 1949, which enabled India to remain in membership after declaring itself a republic after independence. The author suggests that occasional signs that India believes that the Commonwealth is an Anglo-centric hangover from Empire is a relic of a misinformed theory exploded by Nehru in 1949.
